So I found out a few days ago [June 25th] I am pregant. So far it has been welcome news for everyone. I have some spotting right now so the Doctor told me for this week to lay off Yoga and other fitness stuff. I have my first OBY/GYN appointment on July 14th to find out how far along I am really.
The gender prediction test claims that it uses a first morning urine that you mix with "proprietary chemicals" that then reacts with a combination of unnamed hormones, and viola, you know the gender of your baby. Is it accurate?
Last tuesday, we went to the hospital to know exactly how far i was in the pregnancy. Doctor said i was 10 weeks !! Surprisingly, we were shocked ! We thought 7 weeks, maximum. !
But we are very happy.
Tears came down on our faces. We saw him/her for the first time. So cute.
Now, we need to tell our families ! The only person who knows by now, is my oldest sister !
My next appointment in on the 29th to see the doctor.. to know more of what to expect and what to do, since this is my first time being a mom-to-be.
So this entry should predate the first one, but I hadn't wanted to start getting excited until we had a confirmed due date, however here are some pre-prenatal checkup thoughts and observations:
Today, we went for our "early ultrasound" as we did not have a precise due date. As we waited to see the technician that would give us our first glimpse of our developing bundle of joy, I could feel the pressure in my bladder building by the minute. Once in the ultrasound room, the technician explained what was about to happen. She explained that she would have to apply lots of pressure to get a good view of the fetus. I figured, "short term pain, for long term gain (i.e. have a defined due date). At first she had difficulty finding the baby, then she spotted the amniotic sac.
this is my 5th pregnancy, and I am currently 10 weeks along.
My first ended in a loss at 14 weeks, with hearing the heartbeat at my first OB appt at 10 weeks. My second pregnancy was a little over a year later, ending in the birth of my daughter (now 7). About 7 months after she was born I got pregnant again, ending in a loss at 12 weeks. That was in 2003. In Jan of 2010 I found out I was pregnant again, and lost it in Feb of 2010.
Going to the dentist is probably not at the top of your favorite's list, but if you are pregnant, don't think for a minute you can neglect those pearly whites that line your mouth and serve you so well each time you eat or smile.
